  • Upon viewing this film, the first thing I noticed and I believe anyone else did/will notice, is the utterly stunning visual effects & animation. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen an animated film look so beautiful. When I saw the commercials for this movie, I thought it would be something an adult audience could laugh at too. Not so much like the film ‘Shrek’, with mature humor around every corner, (I’m not bashing Shrek, it is one of my all-time favorites) but more like ‘Toy Story.’ A movie with tons of child humor, and just enough to make the parents laugh too. Although, ‘Frozen’ is more of a juvenile film. Sure it has a few points were the adults will giggle, but it is mainly a child pleaser, which is still not a problem, given this is the point of a kids movie. All around, Disney’s ‘Frozen’ is a beautiful masterpiece. An excellent add on to their list of great works.

  • Frozen…

    Frozen, frozen, frozen…

    What to say?

    It’s a great flick! It’s a brilliant return to full on classic musicals! It’s Disney mashing up it’s own heritage and the most recent advances in animation to create a new masterful entry in their catalogue. It’s yet another further nail in the coffin of the helpless princess. It’s Disney coming to terms with their funny buddies formula and trying hard to find the right balance between comic relief and annoying pests. It’s a dream come to life for little girls and boys…

    It’s all that and more since it’s also the first Disney welcoming a women at the helm.

    But it’s not as good as Tangled and forever cursed for being slightly less perfect and successor to a gem…

    Looking forward to hone my judgement with a second viewing, and most certainly several more after that. THIS is where classics are born and where Frozen still has to make its mark.

  • “Frozen” is absolutely magnificent! Not just because of its amazing picture, color and heartfelt ending, but because of how breathtakingly you can see each emotion on each character’s face. Apart from the amazing graphics there were also some great songs. The voices were very nice to listen to, the lyrics were very cleverly put together and the music was really nice. This was a unique story that is by no means the same old Disney sap. It is clever, sweet, funny and has an unexpected ending. The characters are likable within one minute and the conflict is made clear within four minutes. Disney really showed everyone what they are still capable of and that they continue to create really great animation films. No one is too old for Disney, and this is a movie no one deserves to miss!

  • Frozen 7/10- Coming in to this movie, I had no clue what to expect since the trailer I saw for the movie did not really give any key plot details. I had hopes for the movie since the directer, Chris Buck, also directed my favorite childhood movie Tarzan. I was pleased with the results.

    The first part of the movie got me thinking it was gonna be just a regular princess meets prince and they fall in love type movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. The movie did not even focus on any romantic relationship as much as it focused on the relationship between the two princesses Anna and Elsa. Elsa has special powers where she can turn stuff into ice or snow. This movie makes that seem like a good thing at first, but as it wears on we see that Elsa cannot control her powers and now puts everyone around her in danger. She has to be isolated from everyone, including her little sister Elsa. Elsa does not understand why she can never be with her sister. Elsa one day comes out to be inaugurated as queen, but when her emotions get out of control, she puts the kingdom into an eternal winter and then shes flees to the mountains. Anna must go get her so she can get the kingdom out of an eternal winter.

    The movie gives a lot of very funny laughs that everyone can enjoy. The characters are all refreshingly original, but the way they are presented is probably what makes them all so likable. Now, just like every other animated movie, the characters at some point break out and start singing. Most of the time, this part of the movie I detest, but I found myself enjoying a couple of them. Don’t get me wrong, I find that a character singing out of no where with no one else around to be silly, but at least the ones where the situation made sense for it, I enjoyed.
